Apologies for the absence of any new content for a while. The SoMA is run voluntarily by archaeologists and museum professionals who have not been able to gove the love and attention to the SoMA website that it deserves. However, we are back for 2019! Thanks to everyone who made it along to our Welcome to Semester Party. WE love to start the year off with a casual wine and cheese to get to know the new students, different teaching staff and to touch base with old friends. Those of you who were there know that we are launching the 2019 Olwen Turdor Jones Scholarship very soon (This afternoon in fact) with the lucky recipient being awarded $2000 for travel to the Mediterranean (and adjacent) for archaeological field work. Details will follow.
Also you all might already be in the know, but the PAphos Theatre Archaerological Project is currently accepting applications for their 2019 field season scheduled for October. Find out more about the project and how to apply on paphostheatre.org
This year we will continue to support archaeology and archaeological students through our promotion of the Australian Archaeological Instititue at Athens, our engagement with like minded groups such as the Australasian Women in Ancient World Studies and ARCSOC and present our own research projects at various forums including the archaeological seminar series for Near Eastern Archaeology, Classical Archaeology, both held in CCANESA.
